Our team’s knowledge of DEI industry best practices, experience in project management, change management and communications, and data analytics will fuse together to formulate the business case, the strategic plan, equity assessments and the stakeholder engagement that is critical to your inclusive culture journey and reaching your DEI destination and sustaining those efforts.
Our experience differentiates us from our competitors. We are not new jumpers on the diversity bandwagon, our team has over 25 years combined experience leading diversity programs for global brands including The Coca-Cola Company, JP Morgan Chase, and D&B to name a few.
If you looked for a client list, you would not find one. Our relationships with our clients are confidential unless the client chooses share. Because of the sensitivity of the work that we provide our clients: employee disputes, workplace risks, DEI strategic plans, and anti-race and unconscious bias training, we do not share client information, our lips are sealed.
